DON’T MISS PHOEBE ROBINSON’S COMEDY SERIES EVERYTHING’S TRASH—NOW ON FREEFORM!
New York Times bestselling author and star of 2 Dope Queens Phoebe Robinson is back with a new, hilarious, and timely essay collection on gender, race, dating, and the dumpster fire that is our world.
Wouldn't it be great if life came with instructions? Of course, but like access to Michael B. Jordan's house, none of us are getting any. Thankfully, Phoebe Robinson is ready to share everything she has experienced to prove that if you can laugh at her topsy-turvy life, you can laugh at your own.
Written in her trademark unfiltered and witty style, Robinson's latest collection is a call to arms. Outfitted with on-point pop culture references, these essays tackle a wide range of topics: giving feminism a tough-love talk on intersectionality, telling society's beauty standards to kick rocks, and calling foul on our culture's obsession with work. Robinson also gets personal, exploring money problems she's hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and definitely most important, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jeans size. She knows about trash because she sees it every day--and because she's seen roughly one hundred thousand hours of reality TV and zero hours of Schindler's List.
With the intimate voice of a new best friend, Everything's Trash, But It's Okay is a candid perspective for a generation that has had the rug pulled out from under it too many times to count.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Contemplating society’s worst injustices can be daunting and depressing, but not when Phoebe Robinson is guiding the conversation. In her provocative essay collection, the comedian dishes out fire on everything from institutional racism to the scamminess of the beauty industry, backing up every point with hard data and her funny, terrible, and sometimes downright shocking personal experiences. (We’re looking at you, the guy who turned to her immediately post-coitus to recommend thigh-toning exercises.) Amazingly, Robinson makes every moment of this audiobook fun—not by sugarcoating the issues, but by comedy-coating them. Robinson’s hyperactive style and dark sense of humor set the tone, and her narration is incredibly funny and very natural. Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay is an enlightening, entertaining listen.
